authority to use lethal weapons like drones. >> and i'd like to ask senator lindsey graham about this killing of americans sitting at a cafe which he seems to condone. senator graham now is a proponent for the assassined drones now killing american citizens, he says. so we have a lot to hold the congress accountable for. not doing things. not providing transparency. not shutting down the government to get after these memos. i mean, there are ways to go after getting the memos. >> senator feinstein said after the brennan hearing in "politico" saying she's unaware of the reports that the c.i.a. was counting military aged males as militants when they were killed by drone strikes. six months after this was reported by "the new york times" on may 29, 2012. six months. senator feinstein, chair of the senate intelligence committee, unaware of what was reported in "the new york times" that a major expo zeh on drone strikes -- expose on drone strikes. >> part of her responsibility. are we supposed to be the -- >> if you guys don't mind stepping in the hallway. >> just want to let you know, the

lot from lindsey graham about a loft things. the three of you are newer to this issue and i am acurious where you guys are on the -- i am curious where you guys are on the various rules out there. >> from my standpoint i'm not on the judiciary committee. so i won't have a chance to vote on t i'll look at them as they come through. like i said i think we ought to enforce the law we have on the books. you take that general approach then you start getting into air yause like straw purchases, cleaning up data bases, things like that, that are already there but maybe not be working very well right now. unlike senator graham, i look toward to seeing what the judiciary committee comes up with. i would hope that it would be bipartisan whatever it is. i have already come out and said that i'm opposed to senator feinstein's assault weapons ban. said that on the day after she filed it. nonetheless, we'll look at things as they are presented. i think right now from my standpoint because i'm not on the committee it's still relatively early in the process. they have a process they'll go thro

critical of the obama administration for, in his words, being asset. he is joined by senator lindsey graham. i think, in many ways, perhaps the most vocal voice on the hell is senator mccain. >> let's hear -- the most vocal voice on the hill is senator mccain. host: he thinks the u.s. should provide opposition assistance. >[video clip] -- that would be the one caveat that i would put on any military advice -- that the weapons may not be going to our allies. we do not want to inadvertently armed people who are basically sworn enemies. >> you say you would have to get some degree of confidence to make that recommendation. as of this time, do you have that level of confidence yet? >> i do not, but i have not been cast with this mission. i have not looked deeply into this yet, either. host: with this comes a tweet for our guest. what is the chance that the ones we help today are the ones we fight next year? guest: very hard to know that, of course. i think one of the concerns about the armed opposition in syria is the presence of jihadist groups. this is an al qaeda linked organization.
